The Osa "Turtles in Water" Project

This is a unique opportunity to get in the water and study sea turtles as part of a new “catch, study and release” conservation project located in Golfo Dulce, the gulf separating the Osa Peninsula from the mainland. Participants will accompany project staff in research boats and assist in the safe and gentle capture of hawksbill and Pacific green sea turtles. Once the turtle is in the boat, you will help measure, tag, and collect data. When studies are complete, you will help safely release the turtle back into the water.

Herencia Verde has partnered with WIDECAST, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to sea turtle conservation in the Caribbean region.
